Sing it, everybody… “If you’re happy and you know it, don’t do a thing.”
If that camp song was written like this, it just wouldn’t have the same ring to it in Sunday school. Christians are supposed to be thrilled they are going to heaven, Jesus is alive and all sins are forgiven. You know, basic dogmatic tenet stuff.
So when the crumudgeons of Crown Point, Indiana have been lambasting 911 with calls of noise complaints and demands shut it down… speaking of a tent revival… one of two things happened:
- Either these Christians are REALLY and unexpectedly happy about those tenets;
- Or the people of this rural town are really the Children of the Corn and already have their one way ticket to a more balmy climate
Police Chief Pete Land says his department has issued 10 citations to the church between July 31 and Aug. 10. One neighbor told a packed city council meeting Monday night that she has to turn on the air conditioning, the washer, dryer and a fan to drown out the noise.
Well, that’s sweet. They got the permit to have a tent revival, but once they got ‘revived’, all bets were off. Good thing this wasn’t a Todd Bentley crusade, they would have called in the National Guard and really got to snapping.
